The holidays are a frenzied time no matter what, but it’s not solely about chasing sales and battling hordes of shoppers at the mall Dawn of The Dead-style. The month-long celebration has you donning your festive bests for all the parties, dinners, and Friends-givings littered throughout your social calendar. Sometimes the easiest way to get party-prepped is to change up your makeup. A brighter lip, some sharper liner, and a dash of shine gets you into party mode a lot easier than lugging around a wardrobe change. And it just so happens we have all the makeup you’ll need for any occasion.
Home For The Holidays
Nothing like chilling out at Mom and Pop’s with all the amenities that you’ve deprived yourself of in your autonomous adulthood. Cable TV, La-Z-Boy recliners, a stocked kitchen pantry—there really no place like home-home. Your makeup routine can take a backseat with an easy-breezy helping of fresh dewy complexions, a nice flushed glow and a glossy color on the lips. Banila Co’s VV Bouncing Cushion Compact not only gives you that fresh dewy complexion, it also has collagen for a little plumping-power. The easiest way for a natural flush comes in a cushion blusher—just tap on Peripera’s Cushion Blusher for a pop of natural-looking color on your cheeks.
Your Office Holiday Party or a Festive Friendsgiving Dinner
Pared down nighttime glamour calls for a classic winged liner and red lip combo. Clio’s Lipnicure Glass offers a punch of color that feels like a balm and wears like a glossy pigment—best of which is that it lasts on your lips. You can compliment your party pout with a smooth wing of jet black gel liner, really easy to do with Tony Moly’s Backstage Gel Liner . This stuff leaves a deep black matte finish and does not budge, so it can party with the best of them. Top with some waterproof mascara from Peripera and you’re set to fete all night long.
New Year’s Eve Soiree
No New Years Eve party is complete without plenty of sparkle—it’s pretty much requisite every December 31st. How you choose to shine is up to you. If you’re the subtle type, Clio’s Gelpresso Gel Liners are available in a handful of gorgeous jewel-tone shades with a metallic sheen. Our favorite? This sleek silver one! For multi-dimensional glimmer, Tony Moly’s Crystal Tear Glitter Eyeliner is concentrated with an overdose of light-reflecting shine. Peripera’s Jewel Pot cream shadow gives you amazing shimmer that’s so easy to apply with your fingers to your eyelids, or on your cheekbones as a highlighter. Punctuate your glittery look with a Rockettes red lipstick like IOPE’s Colorfit lipstick and shine the night away!
